Nice one RA! Good to have, erm, ambition...

Had a few days of illness, thankfully feeling a bit better today and making training plans. Not actually training, of course. Except the core which I'm about to do.

PaulaMc, have you ever considered a short after-work run to Wapping, or Rotherhithe, and getting the train home from there if you don't fancy the full distance?

PB for distance, Pompey Paul? Planning to run TO Pompeii at any point? Do stop in for a coffee as you pass.

Well done Alex, - and you've allowed yourself plenty of time to get used to the idea.
Turk - I shall be cross-training along with you for at least the next two weeks. Probably longer in my case.
Paula, when were you doing that run? After work? If so, you can imagine me cheering you on and waving Tasty Forbidden Fruit! Tasty Forbidden Fruit! at any point where you haven't already got someone (apart from Tower Bridge I don't really know that route either)

Perfectly normal RA.

Good running from people today.

Sallykate, be careful and don't overdo it.

One of my runs has made it to my training log, one hasn't. Odd, as they both uploaded to Garmin Connect all right.

ITG you'll have to get used to PP's frankly ridiculous mileage. He is an international Ninja too, so many of those miles are run in exotic and or interesting places. Never mind, we still Awwwwwwwwww! him despite all that :-)

I feel a teensy bit better, so much so that when I went into town to buy a frame for an old map son1 bought us for Christmas, I called in to Upn and Running with a determination to buy myself 'something'. I ended up with this Link (roll over me to see where I go)

Annoyingly, despite getting a good discount as a club member, it would have been (very slightly) cheaper if I'd bought it from that website, but then I wouldn't have had the instant gratification of wearing it on tonight's club run, would I? ;-) It's got flashing lights and everything :-)

Well done RA, may inspire me to volunteer one day, park run may be a good start. No one mentioned there were hills in HDS? First the shock of 10/12 miles, now hills, next you'll be saying we have to run through water. Decided to start a bit later so I can ride in the light, managed 2 days of the longer commute ( 9 miles), lovely start to the day and seeing the sunrise. Also got a bonus 4.5 m run yesterday before it got dark. Bristol tomorrow and hoping to be back for club run.

About This Thread

Welcome to the 700 miles in 2017 thread, everybody welcome :-)

The thread motto is:

'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles of either you or the spot you reached the target or both if you want to. And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed and sometimes even some running is talked about.

Happy running :-)
